And sealed with a kiss

PFATT Marketplace Is Hopping This Month!

We have a new webmaster and new goings on at the PFATT Marketplace this month! New artists are coming on board, as well as your old favorites.
 I have three new pieces debuting this month, just in time for the Easter season. The little bunny above was created using an empty vitamin bottle. I love to re-purpose and she's one of the results of my passion.

Two candy cups are up for your consideration as well, made from paper mache and air dry clay. I had a blast creating these! Available at 10AM PST on February 10th and for more information click on PFATT MARKETPLACE

More On the WIP of the Oil Painting

Well, here I am, almost finished muddling through with the oil paints. Some parts of the painting I really like, others frustrated me. It's a learning experience for sure. I need to go sit and watch someone who paints with oils. Time for bed, I hope you've had a creative day!

WIP Trying to Learn Oil Painting

A challenge for me, I've been trying to learn the ins and outs of oil painting. Oh boy, I'm not sure I like the paints, the fumes, and the mess. I'm determined to sort that all out though, as I have friends who want to learn how to oil paint, and they already had their supplies. This is what I have going with this painting so far, and yes I'm using an instructional book to do this. There's a lot to do with this, but here's where I'm at so far. I can see I need to fatten the tops of the reflected trees in the pond, but so far it's not too bad. There's the tree leaves to fill out, the ground and foreground to complete, and then the water to add the finishing touches to. I'm also working on an oil painting from a photograph, and I can see I really need to fix the mountains in the background. I will share that later.
I hope you have a blessed day. Go and be creative today!

Spreading the Love Around

 I'm not sure where the idea for love bugs came into being, but I'm guessing it's Valentine's Day cards. Probably the cute little ones we used to give out in elementary school. I'm so glad I was little during that era, as I know I wouldn't have been  as thrilled about a Barbie or Scooby Do Valentine. I did like Scooby Do okay, but Barbie, no way!
 Back to love bugs though, this handsome little fella is completely hand sculpted with a lot of love and time. He is available on eBay
 Who knew owls like to get in on Valentines?!
Well this sweet guy does, and is available in my etsy shop MothersDreamRtworks
